On the night before my wedding, my soon-to-be father-in-law, a conservative businessman from a prominent family in Seoul, took me out to a private bar to give me some marital advice.
“If you want a happy woman, you don’t bring your work back home with you,” he said.
“I’m still joining the force. Â Here in New York. Â It’s what I want to do,” I replied.
And my father-in-law hasn’t spoken to me since.
